    I agree with you on that one. The phone looks amazing. But I'm sticking with iPhone. I like Apple's ecosystem and the way that it behaves across the Apple devices.

    I have absolutely no problem with the hardware or build quality of the current high-end Androids. It's the software that drives me buggy. Refine the software and apps, and get AirVideo on that sucka, and I'm probably there. Maybe.

    At least during the return period. No guarantees after that.

    True, but I've really had no qualms about the build quality of the Androids I've tested. They're fun to use until you start using the software. They're getting closer, though, I think.

    Android now has AirTwist with DoubleTwist which will stream your media on you device to your Apple TV, PS3 or Xbox 360. Unfortunately, Android is still not as refined as iOS.

    samsung-galaxy-s4-s.jpg

    Taken tonight at the event. One of the few that's not underexposed. Horrible setting for press to have any meaningful hands-on time. Some dude was literally taking screenshots of every screen. I'm guessing he's going to email himself or something.

    It's nice looking. Feels and looks very much like the Galaxy S3.

    Now I did see the HTC One.. wow. That's a different ballgame.

    So your saying that Samsung stepped their game up comparing to the HTC 1?

    It looks stunning, something that Apple would have designed. Didn't hold it, but a couple of people from HTC had them and were showing them to people on the line.

    No, I think Samsung went with what works. People like their phones and they just made a better Galaxy. Similar to the 3, but better everything and a real focus on software features. I'm not sure how many of those translate into features real people would use regularly.

    When you get to be the size of Apple and now Samsung, the safe move is the safe move. Regardless of how I or others gush about the HTC One, Samsung is going to sell a tremendous number of the GS4. People like their phones, so no reason for them to stray from what works.

    I agree. I mean they are feature packed phones. The thing is now that they have 5" screen where does the Note fit into that equation?

    Does it do live conversion of any file format, though? That's the reason Air Video is so useful for me.

    But from the research I've done, you have to stream file formats that are compatible with the Apple TV. AirVideo for the iPhone streams many different formats with very little trouble. That would be useless to me.

    Galaxy S4 seems good, but i think the next iPhone 5s will have more surprise.

    Yeah, the Galaxy S4 is good, especially like the Dual View and Drama Shot, but I would like wait the iPhone 6!

    You just have to love it. Competition that is and not for nothing but this is what Apple needs. I'm not looking for radical change like some people but a little nudge. This is where you settle disputes with customers buzz not all of it in a court room. The Galaxy S IV is a nice piece of hardware and really excited on what Apple would have up its sleeve.

    I do like how they consistently give their phones a commen-sense generation number, unlike Apple. Imagine if this phone was called the Samsung Galaxy S3S. Then it would not only have a weird name that would screw up their naming scheme for the rest of time, but Apple would sue them for it, too.
